The family alleged that a man had kidnapped the woman and engaged in misconduct with her on the assurance of getting the woman divorced.

We then approached the Superintendent of Police (SP) of Yamunanagar who directed the Jathlana police station to take action after investigating the matter. But even after 20 days of registering a complaint with the SP, the police did not take any action," the deceased's uncle stated.
